Water's Mood

The collection is inspired by the poetry of water.

If we move away from the aesthetic and artistic view of water, a range of bluish shades appears contrasted with mauves, showing the way water shines with rays of light. Khaki, sandy shades come from lakes and ponds, and whites, greys and blacks show the colourless quality of water.

Vaporous materials, like silk, worked based on pleats, draping and superimposition, sketch the enveloping silhouette of a dreamy, sophisticated woman.

By contrast rigid materials, like cotton, are handled with clean, simple cuts highlighting the female body. Using details and refined pattern work, they are garments for a sophisticated, sober woman who likes to take risks.

Toni Francesc Spring/Summer 2010 is my favorite collection this spring season. It was refreshing and impressive - each piece is a work of art. I am really impressed with the draping and the way volume is added to each piece without making it appear frumpy. You can really see the effort that went into this collection. The dresses are gorgeous and move with such fluidity. The separates are modern, classy and elegant. I can just imagine how well these pieces would elongate a petite figure such as mine. Take a look at the video clip, as there are some images not shown that are amazing.
